After the posts dedicated to the earthquake I think it is time to start, again, to highlight interesting events taking place across London. The next event is held at the DAIWA Anglo-Japanese Foundation:
Work and Pension in the UK and Japan
This third seminar in the 2011 series, Uncertain Futures: The Individual, Society and the State in the UK and Japan, will consider issues relating to employment, retirement and pension reform. Fiscal restraints and demographics are contributing to ongoing policy discussions on working life and pension provision in both countries. Our speakers are well placed to set out changing aspects of government policy and to compare historical legacies and the transformation of welfare regimes. Political shifts in the UK and Japan have brought new ideas to bear on these difficult issues. How current governments are responding to social needs and economic circumstances will form the basis of the seminar discussion.
